With Father’s Day almost here, I have a cool giveaway for readers of the blog for Father’s Day compliments of Ford Canada.

Here are the rules.  Leave a comment with your real name and email address.  Tell a story about driving with your dad (or step-dad or uncle or father figure), tell us a little about the car, the place, and why it was memorable.  It can be meaningful or funny, you pick.

I’ll do a draw from the contestants and you will win….

Your Morning Idea

Some of you have noticed that this blog has come alive again (which is a nice way of saying that the blog has sucked recently).  Part of it has been me spending more time looking (and sharing) some big ideas via video.  I realized the other day that I have this huge backlog of videos that I am going to be posting at 9:00 a.m. daily (Saskatchewan time).  While there will be other videos posted during the day, they will be posted as I feel like sharing, like any other post.  The goal is to give you something interesting and thought provoking from some of my favourite people every morning.  I hope you enjoy it.

It’s back has been down since Monday when the server it is on at Dreamhost crashed.  It has been hosted on Dreamhost since 2005 and I have essentially 7 years of uptime so I wasn’t that worried that the site was down but I was surprised it took Dreamhost until today to get the site back online.  Dreamhost did a good job of communicating with me via the control panel and email.  Well the site is back online now and we are good to go.

2011 Canadian Weblogs Award Nominees

2011 Canadian Weblog AwardsThe 2011 Canadian Weblog Award Nominees have been listed.  I have been nominated for the best political blog and the lifetime achievement award.  Among Saskatoon bloggers, I see that Dave Hutton’s City Hall Notebook and Sean Shaw’s Municipal Matters blogs have been nominated in a couple of categories as well.  I looked through the list and didn’t see any other local nominees but if I missed any, let me know.
